SCRANTON, Pa. (CBS) — A federal judge has denied bail to a Pennsylvania man accused of threatening President Trump and law enforcement officials.
Shawn Christy maintained his innocence during an appearance in a Scranton courtroom Friday.
Prosecutors say Christy posted threats on Facebook in early June, naming the president and anyone trying to detain him on the basis of a bench warrant.
Christy’s parents insist their son is not a danger to the public.
Christy was on the run for about three months until his capture in September near Cleveland.
The judge decided Christy was a flight risk.
